One of the best potters out of East Texas lives around Marshall, Texas. I have two coffee cups by him, but I wish I had a great deal more works by him, because his work is quite elegant. He has his own symbols and designs that seem a little out of time and space from behind the pine curtain of East Texas. He just had a show at the Marshall Fine Art Center this winter. He has a show around every December, so I am looking forward to next years show already.
